    You may not agree with every observation in Michael Singh’s documentary Valentino’s Ghost. But this engrossing examination of American perceptions of Arabs and the Arab world gets you thinking.

    Mr. Sharma has created a swirling, fascinating travelogue and a stirring celebration of devotion.
    • 46 Metascore

    This film — the second from the Soskas, and shot in their hometown, Vancouver, British Columbia — combines gore, quiet dread, feminist conviction and a visual classicism, often using a red palette, with impressive, unbelabored dexterity.

    A record of a man’s tormented youth, his broad artistic impulses and the price he paid for following them.

    The variety of physical perspectives lends a vivid you-are-there aspect to this record of the Zuccotti Park protest in New York in 2011.

    The movie revels in multiple film stocks (with hairs or threads often on the camera lens) and self-conscious “Last Movie” flourishes (long intervals between credits, “scene missing” title cards, a version of “Me and Bobby McGee”) while maintaining its blithe humor.

    The ideas in this densely packed but enlightening film can be challenging, but must be heard.

    Breezy, intelligent, diffuse but uncluttered, Fredrik Gertten’s documentary Bikes vs Cars could be called a tale of congestion-plagued cities.
    • 77 Metascore

    Trapped is not a balanced analysis of the abortion debate; it makes its sympathies clear. But it is a powerful and persuasive rendering of a corner of women’s health care under siege.

    Quiet, graceful, stately and infused with slow tension, Dana Rotberg’s White Lies unfolds with inexorable weight.
    • 45 Metascore

    A richly satisfying poison-pen letter to the music industry.

    German Kral’s documentary Our Last Tango is a combination of things, all fascinating.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 90 Andy Webster
    Many of the passages in this gentle film may be universal, but the love here is extraordinary.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 80 Andy Webster
    A skilled portrait of a literary light shadowed by his public profile. The film, written and directed by Tom Bean and Luke Poling, tacitly suggests a reconsideration of its subject, who deserves it.

    Ms. Turner captures the intimacy of solemn, heartfelt moments, and salutes a man who honors their value.

    The enchantment is irresistible in Judd Ehrlich’s documentary Magic Camp, a spry and revealing examination of Tannen’s Magic Camp.
    • 54 Metascore
    • 80 Andy Webster
    In its allegiance to detail, the film is too long and perhaps overstates its case in claiming that later generations have lost an understanding of common courage, as depicted by these two artists. Their work endures, and so does what they stood for.

    Like many tragic visionaries, Kirk Hanna lives on through his ideas long after his death.
    • 71 Metascore

    This winning movie — directed by Daniel Ribeiro, making his feature debut — dexterously weaves the social challenges of adolescence into a story of broader self-discovery.

    The luminaries in “21” pay deserving tribute to Mr. Linklater. Soon, perhaps, so will the Academy

    While Faults glances at the narcissism of cult leaders, its most penetrating investigation is into the root emptiness within disciples, the desperate hunger to relinquish personal initiative.

    This candy-coated confection is so irresistible that you’re captivated by its sentiment even as you acknowledge its manipulations.

    Ms. Shaye gives Insidious more than sufficient reason for a Chapter 4.
    • 58 Metascore

    Besides a clever, blithely ribald script by Bradley Jackson, the movie benefits from a potent “Saturday Night Live”-empowered cast.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 80 Andy Webster
    Onni Tommila, Mr. Helander’s nephew, has an expressive face and marvelous understatement. And Mr. Jackson has never seemed so unblustery; his scenes with the younger actor have ease and humor.

    Impressive acting (especially from Mr. Suliman and Yael Abecassis as Yonatan’s mother) enhances this thoughtful drama, directed with a sure hand by Mr. Riklis, a film veteran.

    • 80 Andy Webster
    Rarely has a movie so humorously illustrated the meaning of “frenemy.”

    The film is remarkable, considering its minimal means and surprising lack of bloodshed, given the genre. Does it stay with you? A little.

    Its principal merit is the quiet authority of Ms. Mumtaz, who combines a mother’s passionate concern with glimmers of an awakening consciousness.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 80 Andy Webster
    The American demand for drugs, which feeds the cartels, is mentioned, though regrettably not expanded upon. But as a rendering of Mexico’s agonized convulsions, Kingdom of Shadows is unforgettable.
